Pat Caraway

Caraway had a fair curveball and a bizarre, accordion-like windup, nearly doubling over his 6’4″ frame before delivering. He went 10-10 as a rookie in 1930, but in 1931 came completely unglued. On July 23 in Boston, he pleaded in vain to be taken out after giving up 11 runs in 4-2/3 innings. Between innings, manager Donie Bush berated his pitcher unmercifully. Three days later in New York, Caraway was shelled 22-5, the worst loss in White Sox history. His 24 losses led the AL that year. Surprisingly, he made the club the next spring, but was sent down in July.
